Veeam® Backup Essentials™ delivers powerful, affordable and easy-to-use backup, recovery, monitoring and reporting for virtual workloads, including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV, as well as physical and cloud workloads.
This small business backup solution is designed for companies with less than 250 employees and environments no larger than 50 Instances or 6 CPU Sockets, delivering the enterprise-grade functionality of Veeam Availability Suite™, but packaged and priced for the needs of small business.
A Perpetual license allows you to buy upfront and own the product forever. Perpetual licenses are licensed per-CPU Sockets on hosts with virtual machines (VMs) to be backed up, replicated, monitored or reported on. A license is required for each occupied motherboard socket, as reported by the hypervisor API. The first year of Basic maintenance and support is included, with options to extend Basic maintenance and support for up to four additional years, as well as upgrade to Production maintenance and support.
1 Production 24x7 Support available at request. The additional year of support is billed as a percentage of the current MSRP: Basic = 22% and Production 24x7 = 27%
